The quotes in this book is witty and sometimes funny. I'm not sure if you'll learn something from the book and its cute illustrations but if you want a smile (or a smirk), read this. Maybe if there are accompanying anecdotes to each quotations then this book would indeed share some wisdom. I have a fair share of cheers, though!
